Gorbachev's Green Cross International Is Green on the
Outside and Red on the Inside
The politically correct opinion at the ongoing UN Framework Convention on Climate Change meeting in Poznan, Poland, has been best stated by media mogul Ted Turner: "Weapons of mass destruction, disease, I mean this global warming is scaring the living daylights out of me." In response to his fears, Turner gives millions of his own mega-wealth to the UN, and he even sponsored a UN religious program that taught the supposed "many paths to God."
Turner is also an honorary board member of Green Cross International, an organization founded in 1993 by former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to offer aid to the environment without consideration of national borders. They call it a "Red Cross for the environment." Its logo is a Crusader-style cross and a leaf joined in a circular pattern.
Gorbachevís focus on the environment through the UN is a clear embrace of what is green on the outside, but red on the inside. It is sometimes called the watermelon effect, which is communism. As a matter of fact, the entire focus of the meeting in Poland and next yearís meeting in Copenhagen is twofold, the creation of an infrastructure for: 1) technology transfers from developed to developing nations and 2) finance from developed to developing countries. Simply put, the aim of the "climate change" treaty of 1997 and its proposed replacement by a new treaty to be completed in Copenhagen in 2009, is to redistribute wealth around the globe.
Here is how it works: A developed nation's industrial capabilities would be bound by the old Kyoto or the new Copenhagen "global warming" treaty by limiting the amount of fossil fuels burned because such burning produces greenhouse gases, primarily carbon dioxide. New or growing industries could not be created in a developed nation, but could be built by a developed nation in a developing nation using the latest technologies.
The UNFCCC has said the world's poor countries will need $130 billion dollars a year by 2030 to help them adapt to global warming and curb their carbon emissions. The U.N. says rich countries need to increase their payments over the next 20 years to six times the funds available now, which is about $21 billion.
The "global warming" agenda not only pushes communism's redistributionist economics, it also endorses its atheism.
The essence of the fears of extreme environmentalists like Turner and Gorbachev is the Judeo-Christian belief that God is not only Creator, but that He also instructed Adam and Eve in Genesis 1:28 to "Be fruitful and increase in number, fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the ground."
The fact is Western Civilization and its Judeo-Christian foundation are what "scares the living daylights" out of the UN and its supporters. If God was not in their way, the UN mistakenly thinks it could set its own standards and laws and change them at will. God is clearly too authoritarian for their atheist and redistributionist agenda.
Gorbachev's use of the cross in his Green Cross International has nothing to do with the true cross of Christ that Christians value. As a matter of fact, Gorbachev set the record straight in the March 2008 Christian Post stating, "Over the last few days some media have been disseminating fantasies ≠ I can't use any other word ≠ about my secret Catholicism, citing my visit to the Sacro Convento friary, where the remains of St. Francis of Assisi lie. To sum up and avoid any misunderstandings, let me say that I have been and remain an atheist."
The Biblical cross signifies the end of Jesus' ministry on earth when He gave Himself up as the sinless God / man to become the perfect sacrifice. All who accept His final, once-and-for-all blood sacrifice and believe that He rose from the dead are Christians.
Gorbachev's cross is an atheist's attempt to confuse Christian beliefs with a new "green" religion. I have witnessed in various cities around the globe World Council of Churches events that attempt to add "green" doctrines to Biblical teachings, but those "green" doctrines actually abuse Biblical teachings.
Redistribution of wealth and atheism are NOT the earmarks of the cross of Christ and Christianity, but of communism. Communists use humanism to push their atheist agenda and in 1992 Gorbachev founded The International Foundation for Socio-Economic and Political Studies (The Gorbachev Foundation), an independent think tank committed to "democratic values and moral, humanistic principles in the life of society."
Humanists do not believe that humans are different from animals, with a superior brain and the ability to communicate information from one generation to the next, that we might subdue the earth and have dominion over it, as commanded.
President-elect Obama is sending U.S. Senator John Kerry to Poznan, Poland, to observe the talks. He told the press, "It's a very exciting time. It's a moment we have been waiting for, many of us, for some period of time; we intend to pick up the baton and really run with it." Obama has been "very, very clear that after eight years of obstruction and delay and denial, the US is going to rejoin the world community in tackling this global challenge."
The gauntlet has been placed by the UNFCCC that an infrastructure must be in place by 2009 in Copenhagen to redistribute technologies and finance from developed to developing nations based upon a "global warming" THEORY that has yet to be proved by science.
It remains to be seen whether Americans will follow Gorbachev's Green Cross International agenda of atheism and redistribution of wealth OR whether we will respectfully treat "global warming" as a THEORY and remember our Judeo-Christian foundations of Western Civilization. Our free market, our national sovereignty and our freedoms depend on decisions made by our elected officials at this UN meeting in Poland and beyond.
